West Yorkshire holds a great variety of attractions, to suit all tastes, budgets and ages. Visitors come to this beautiful northern part of the United Kingdom for a choice of outdoor opportunities which include rock climbing, rambling, horse riding and boating. In cities like Wakefield and Leeds you'll find all manner of cultural venues, from cinemas and theatres to art galleries and museums. West Yorkshire is also renowned for its industrial heritage; there are canals and cast iron bridges all across the county. Another attractive feature of the landscape if you're staying at a West Yorkshire hotel is the number and variety of picturesque churches; many of these date back to the Normans, but even the more recent ones, such as Holy Trinity Church in Leeds, are venerable old buildings and well worth a visit.
West Yorkshire Hotels for Holy Trinity Church in Leeds
Holy Trinity Church in Leeds is relatively young. Its foundation stone was laid as recently as 1722, which is like yesterday by the standards of English ecclesiastical architecture! We have Elizabeth Hastings, also known as Lady Betty, a daughter of the Earl of Huntingdon and a local benefactress, to thank for the project. Her brainchild was backed by merchants in the community, and the architect was William Etty of York. Whether you're passing through Leeds or staying at a West Yorkshire hotel here you'll be welcome to come and worship and spend time in contemplation, or simply enjoy the ambience and architecture of the church.

Holy Trinity is an outstanding example of a classical Georgian church. It's located right in the middle of the city and is very easy to find. Apart from its main function as a place of worship as one of the three Leeds parish churches, it's also a popular venue for classical music concerts. The Leeds Handel Festival is based here and at several other city venues every March.
